so i waited just a few days to post anything about this, just in case someone didn't want to find out blog-style. i thought they might want to hear from the woman herself. but, being that it's been about a week (i believe), it's time. and although they may not completely approve of this picture, i'm sure they'll come to forgive me. it's all i got, and i know there's some of you who want to see the man in her life.
my dear mommy is engaged to michael (mike) orlando, sr. it is completely official, meaning she has a ring on her finger! and it's so pretty! i'd post a picture, but then others might not want to see it that way...so i'll wait another week for that one. you understand. (smile) my mom met mike through a mutual long-time friend of the family...who is also mike's daughter-in-law (kim orlando...formerly a reuel). referrals really are the best way to share the gospel...er...i mean, love. (hehe) anyway, there's not an exact date set, that i know of, but it won't be far away. i have a feeling it may even be sooner than anyone thinks. yikes! we are very happy for both of them and are excited to welcome more family into our lives! we love you both!
